I've been having problems posting. Initially, I thought the fault was with my laptop, but the problem seems to have sorted itself out as mysteriously as it started, so maybe it was Blogger after all. And, now I'm back, I hope to catch up with you all over the next few days.
Since I last wrote, there's been news. Good news. Four new short story sales (three to The People's Friend and one to That's Life! in Australia) and a request for a full manuscript. Yes, I’ve heard back about my partial and they want to see more. I have duster and a can of Pledge in hand as I write, for the purposes of furious final polishing. A quiet and subdued yay – I’m very pleased, but also realistic enough to know it might still come to nothing.
And it’s apt I should hear so much good news at this time of year because somehow, once again, I’m suffering a birthday. There have been lovely gifts and lots of cake (and I’m not mentioning the wrinkles and grey hair). But I'm still left reeling that yet another year has whizzed by.
Mentioning gifts, lovely Judy Jarvie has popped by with a freebie for all of you. Take it away, Judy:
It’ll only be available for a limited time – Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February so please make sure you snaffle yours. It should be available from around 8am on Saturday just in case anyone goes inearly and it’s not there.
And some reasons why it’s worth a free read:
1 The Hero; Lyle Sutherland is a racing driver with banter,brawn and brains.
3 It’s about naughty behaviour between consenting adults – a rollercoaster romance.
